You've probably noticed, or read, by now that Twitter and Instagram aren't really getting along all that well. Twitter originally blocked Instagram users' access to their Twitter friends. Then last week Instagram began disabling its integration with Twitter Cards, completely removing support as of yesterday.

Now, when you or someone you follow sends an Instagram photo to Twitter, you'll only see a link to the photo (as you can see in the screenshot above). In the past, you'd see the entire photo directly in your Twitter timeline when using any official Twitter app or the Web site. This change is frustrating for Twitter and Instagram users alike.

Thankfully services such as IFTTT (If This, Then That) exist, making workarounds for situations like this possible. One such solution has already been published and it works like a charm.

As originally covered by TechCrunch, IFTTT user djbentley came up with a simple recipe that allows you to add a hash tag when posting an Instagram photo, which will in turn send it to Twitter and display it properly.

  • To get started, head on over to IFTTT and sign up if you haven't already.
  • Add this recipe to your account. During the process of adding the recipe, you'll need to allow IFTTT access to both your Instagram and Twitter accounts and pick a hash tag as a trigger. That's it.

In my example, I picked #restoreig. Going forward, whenever I tag an Instagram photos with #restoreig, IFTTT will automatically send it to Twitter, and the photo will display properly for my Twitter followers. Here's what the same tweet shown at the top of the post, the one with just a link and some text, looks like when sent through the recipe:
